Sustainable Cities (Fall 2016)

"We are an inter-disciplinary research team driven by a common goal of making our cities sutainable.

Sustainable architecture requires integrating human behavior and decision-making about the built environment within an ever-larger range of spatial, political, and cultural contexts. In addition to building-occupant interaction, we are increasingly considering the roles of microclimate and social dynamics in supporting cities as they develop policies and incentives for improved energy utilization."
